I posted a couple of weeks ago asking for ideas of how to encourage my beloved to propose on our fabulous weekend in the Lake District this weekend. Well I am very glad to say he did, and I said a big fat yes!

No ring yet because I totally want to be involved in the choosing, just thought I would share my brilliant news, especially as I can''t tell anyone else yet as we are going to a wedding a couple of weeks and I don''t want to steal their thunder.

Hi Kaleigh

Yes that is right, we are English and live in the midlands about 3 hours from the Lakes. We were staying at this hotel http://www.holbeckghyll.com which is just heavenly with amazing views, rooms and exquisite food. We stayed once before and I knew I wanted to be proposed to there.

''It'' happened whilst we were taking a bath together, drinking an amazing bottle of delicious champagne. I was delightfully surprised. We have done nothing but talk about the wedding since, but I am feeling all overwhelmed now I actually have to find a ring!

Awww, that sounds sooo romantic. Hubby''s family many generations ago hailed from Hawkshead. We went to the lake district to explore his roots. There is still a store in Hawkshead that bears our last name. The lake district is just breath taking. I''d love to go back!!!

Congratulations!

What are you thinking ring-wise? It''s terrifying once you have to actually decide!

I''m having mine made in the US - gotta love the exchange rate right now...

Hi Pandora

You are very wise indeed!

Ring wise I am fluctuating wildly now I actually have to come up with something, I am leaning towards cushion or oval with micropave band, I think. We plan to go and try lots on in shops here in Nottingham this weekend, then narrow down to size of stone I would like. What is yours going to be like, and how do you go on with regard to importing jewellry from the states?

Thanks again

I''m getting a cushion cut 1.42ct tsavorite in a channel set split-shank platinum band. Wink found my stone and is going to be making my setting too I hope (waiting for the quote right now). There are lots of details on my procrastinations and lack of decision on it over in the coloured stone forum - or search tsavorite...

I''m over in the US in september, so I''ll have it shipped to an appraiser either in NYC or Chicago and pick it up in person. You can ship, but you''ll probably have to go and look for it at customs.
